Earlier this year, I attended a Portrait photography course run by the Trained Eye. The course took place in Shoreditch, which I love – it’s arty, colourful, eclectic and such a great place for portrait photography or engagement shoots. Our tutor for the day was David McNeil, who is an Edinburgh and London wedding photographer. David has such creative ideas, it was a real inspiration spending the day with him and learning so much. I would have never thought of using a big smelly bin as a background, but the resulting photos are some of my favourites! Now I look at everything around me as a possible backdrop or item I can somehow incorporate in my photos.
I have since returned to Shoreditch a number of times, and it never ceases to amaze me how quickly things change & how I always seem to find new and interesting places to use for my portrait photography. I’ll be back!!
